DRAWING

Drawing is often considered the first building block of an arts education, and our drawing courses at ASLD offer all the skills students need to both learn the basics and create finished works of art.

We have a variety of foundational courses for beginners, as well as courses focusing on landscape, portraiture, figure drawing and human anatomy, architecture, and expressionism.

All of our drawing classes are taught by professional faculty artists, each with a different teaching style and a different perspective to offer on drawing.

PAINTING

At ASLD we value the fundamentals of art education, and our painting courses provide students with everything from the most foundational skills to truly outside-the-box options.

The artists who make up our painting faculty are professional artists who share their knowledge about selling work and showing in galleries in addition to painting techniques.

With everything from figure painting to portraiture to landscapes to abstract, we have a painting course for everyone who’s ever thought about putting a brush to canvas.
